Upside down world


The world is upside down. If you stand on your head, everything becomes clearer. The granny eats the wolf. Craxi is a statesman. The convicts are parliamentarians. Mastella is Minister of Justice. It’s enough to do a tiny click. And think differently. What does it take?
Then we would finally stop being indignant. For the new Millennium we need a new Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, because theirs is never to get to know anything” Grillo 3:07.
We therefore rejoice to greet the awards given to the courageous Dutch soldiers working for the United Nations, defenders of Srebrenica, as explained to us by Slaven from Mostar.

Dear Beppe,
I’m writing to you from Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina. I’m writing because I see that you are one of the few that manages to speak openly and because I have always been following you.
The reason that has motivated me to write to you is as follows. Perhaps you know a bit about the story of the massacre of Srebrenica where the Serb army killed about 8,000 people. Srebrenica is a small town where civilians from surrounding villages came because the United Nations had declared the town to be a UN safe area.
Inside was the Dutch battalion to protect them. When the Serb army had tightened its encirclement of the town, the civilians asked the Dutch battalion for help. But they declared that they were neutral and were not going to side with anyone.
Thus, you had the army, with cannons, tanks, rifles and the rest, on one side, civilians of whom most were women, elderly people and children on the other.
When they had understood that the UN forces would do nothing, the Serb army took all these people into the wood and shot them.
Up until now 8,000 bodies have been found, but unfortunately, there will be others, because who knows where they have finished up in these woods.
In conclusion. The Dutch Defence Minister gave the Medal of Honour to the Dutch Battalion for the courage shown in Srebenica, with so much support from the European Commission.
But this is not an isolated case. It is simply the tip of an iceberg, as you say.
Here with us, the war finished 10 years ago and here what is holding back the development of the country is the international community, not a hypothetical possibility of another civil war…
The most outrageous fact was when the International forces came in with the tanks near to the church of Medjugorje (English version), and the soldiers, with their weapons visible, questioned the pilgrims (from Italy, Mexico, United States, Africa, etc. ) that were there, because ‘they knew’ that during the Mass ‘they were selling’ arms?!
After the event, the usual excuse was: It was an exercise!
There are so many examples, but it makes me want to vomit just to think about it and I don’t have the strength to write them all for you. I send you my most cordial greetings, with the hope that you will read this letter and that those who work with you will investigate this topic a bit. I wish you every success in your work. Greetings!”

The voices of the Aia with much attention are listened to also from Ramiz Delalic Celo, commander of war of the Deveta brdska brigada (Ninth montana brigade, ndt.) of the Armija BiH, accused to have begun to kill the Serbs of Sarajevo still before that it began the war in Bosnia and Erzegovina: therefore, it is accused of the famous homicide of "convitato the Serbian one to the wedding of Bascarsija" Nikola Gardovic, happened 1° March 1992. She has continued to kill the Serbs also during I besiege of Sarajevo, where the part of the city "from Vjecna vatra in on" controlled, and its victims have been eliminated on the slope of Trebevic and in the Prison they of Sarajevo centers. To the end of the war, Delalic has taken position as one of the figures centers them in the gangsterism of the Bosnian understood one them, therefore or is in continuously in escape or takes part to the yields of the armed accounts.

Hi Giovanni! Welcome back!

We now have a new head of the UN. A great opportunity for improvement. I do not, however, expect to see anything different.

Posted by: Charlie Willey | January 6, 2007 12:05 AM

It is the true, r.i.p., but I see many really photo and video of soldiers of Nasser Oric to kill more and more Serbian civilians and soldier surrendered in 1992-1993, I see the body of these people without head, heart, brain, eyes... Bosnian Muslim forces mutilated the bodies of Bosnian Serb soldiers, tortured, burned, after the death, why? And all this before the Serbian Army enter in Srebrenica and for revenge killed the Bosniac people,all soldiers of this war are criminals... more hate, more civilians killed, why? is 50 years that these people hate themselves... ugly war, the civilians of all the nations in this war have endured revenge and suffering, this is only sold and ethnic cleaning... Ustascia Croate, Muslim Bosniac and Serbia Force have completed crimes of war against the civilians, son is massacred to you to vicissitude, it uses to it have supported independence of the Bosnia and the average has given prominence only to the Serbian massacres for shake the public opinion and making to take part the NATO...

Well, well, well!!!

It appears that this message from Bosnia confirms what I've been saying for several months now. UN is a worthless group of Nations, filled with people who talk all the time, but not concrete action is ever taken to solve the numerous problems that this world has.

It appears, once again, that if it wasn't for the United States of America using it's own people and resources, this Balkan region of Europe would still be filled with slaughter, murder, deportation and the like to this day.

How weird, there isn't oil or valuable natural resources in that region. Who knows, maybe our government thought differently.

Anyway, rumors are saying that Milosevic didn't die for some sort of illness or, like someone believe, poisoning. It was actually a deadly dose of BOREDOM, due to the virtual INACTION of the THE HAGUE tribunal that killed him. Five years plus to process this war criminal and still not having reached an end. What a shame.

Maybe it is time that the Europeans learn to chit chat a little less and DO a little more. Maybe it is time for them to STOP criticize the U.S. from their comfortable chairs, get off their butts and get seriously involved in the world arena, showing the rest of us what they are capable of.

Beside, of course, giving or accepting decorations for being witnesses to mass murder and doing nothing about it.

It would be interesting to include a discussion of whether the Telekom Serbia deal helped Milosevic finance arms acquisitions--thus making the war much more devastating and prolonged.

It would also be interesting to know what role, if any, the left wing Italian government in charge at the time played in the Telekom Serbia affair.

It should be remembered that, whatever the Dutch or the UN troops did or should have done, responsibility for the massacre remains with the perpetrators. And those who supported them.

So, it would be interesting to know if Italians were supporting them.

There is nothing to say abaut war.
My opinion is in opposition to the other, but I really think that wherever there is a civil war people became ANIMAL and there aren't Dutch forces that can stop or change it.
I think that the order to stay hang in front of the massacre is objectivly wrong but, why don't we ask the motivation of this order? I think that the answer is simply, there weren't any objective MONEY motive to being there our soldier, only political's, so, lo OIL NO MILITARY DEATH ACCEPT !

Slaven accuses.

Grillo publishes the accusations to instigate the masses.

The accused, however, do not have a chance to reply.

(But the masses do not notice and do not care.)

Sorry for the typo: Slaven not Slave

Slave, don't worry, these Medals of Honour are mostly worthless replicas of fried eggs.

Posted by: Enrico Rossi | January 4, 2007 06:03 PM

Tha international community has always been inactive in the international crisis, because they are not really interested in the conflict resolution. A friend of mine is UNO officer and I heard many bad histories about "good faith" of the international community, especially in the Third World.

About Craxi:
Did you guys hear that at Hammamet somebody wants to name a street after him?

Posted by: Giovanni Principe | January 4, 2007 05:39 PM

The Dutch Minister of Defense can stick that medal up his soldiers' asses without forgetting the needle.
The European Community is doing to Bosnia the same thing that is doing to the rest of Europe.
We need those European congressmen like we need a hole in our heads.
Since the European Parliament has been constituted I did not see any substantial gain, starting from the Euro and going ahead with fiscal policies.
Every other European country could be in Bosnia's situation if it was not for the progress that everibody gained before the European Union.
